Rajinikanth says he is true Tamilian
Reacting to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy’s remarks dubbing him as a ‘disaster’ in Tamil Nadu politics, Rajinikanth on Friday eloquently said the people would see what happens when the ‘ultimate war’ comes.
“I have responsibilities and works, same with you. Let’s do it, but when the ultimate war comes, we all will see,” he said.
Addressing his fans in Chennai, the superstar said, “I am 67 years old. I lived in Karnataka for 23 years and in Tamil Nadu for 43 years. I have lived and grown with you. You have been truly loving and welcoming and made me a true Tamilian. If I have to live anywhere in this world that will be in Tamil Nadu”.
The actor was possibly reacting to Sarath Kumar’s “outsider” remark against him, earlier this year.
Rajinikanth further said that the system needs to be changed, and moreover the mindset of the people has to change.
“There are many senior people in politics. One among them is M.K. Stalin who is very able. Anbumani Ramadoss is an able administrator who has toured across the world. Thirumavalavan has been very vocal about each and every subject,” he said.
The 66-year-old actor had earlier hinted that he might join politics in near future.
“God decides what we have to do in life. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I m fulfilling my responsibility. If God is willing, I will enter politics tomorrow. If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money. I won’t work with such people”.
